Super-seed quinoa may have found a place on lunch and dinner plates, but the economical, versatile and protein-rich food is also fantastic for breakfast. Buttery-tasting pistachios, a tiny dash of vanilla extract, sweet honey and tangy low-fat yogurt make this dish almost dessert-like.
- 1 cup water
- 1/2 cup quinoa (or 1 1/2 cups cooked quinoa)
- 2 Tbsp. shelled and chopped, unsalted pistachios
- 1/4 tsp. pure vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup low fat plain Greek yogurt
- 2 tsp. liquid honey
Combine the water and quinoa in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cover for 17 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the pistachios and vanilla. Divide into two dishes and top each with 1/4 cup yogurt and 1 tsp of honey. Serve.
